Bawn LS12 ???? Yer wot????

Typical Satnav addicted courier. If you were to check on an 1852 Ordnance Survey map you would discover that the hamlet of Bawn was situated to the north-west of the junction of modern day Bawn Drive and and Butterbowl Drive. It now has a 1950’s housing estate built over it.

You might think that that’s Farnley but the ‘Network’ gazetteer, being based firmly on 1850’s technology, knows that it’s Bawn.
